At Mont Saint Michel, south of Cherbourg, France

MontstMi.JPG (7271 bytes) This is me on one of my motorcycles, a Yamaha FJ1200-ABS, with Mont Saint Michel (MSM) in the background.  MSM is an 11th century abbey-fortress built by some religious order in the marshes along the Atlantic coast.  At high tide, the castle used to be totally cut of from the mainland (until they built the raised road to allow tourists in a few years ago).

It's a bit touristy there, but still very picturesque!
